4 stars Dark, but optimistic atmosphere of these songs surrounds this record wholy. The kind of folk I love, enhanced by something more, providing much needed free mood, air of choice and good will. It is a story about accomplished dream, how just another color inspired (Magenta, Cyan, Fuchsia, Orange, endless Blue groups, Red ones, Black metal types etc, Yellow fevers, whatever). There are orchestral (like, private orchestra consisting of violin) arrangements, but the problem is that they're quite muted, as other instruments are more prominent (guitar). Vocals are fine, sounds quite new (reminding me vocalist of Art Brut group, which as fact is strange). Backing vocals aren't that pleasant, but they're sparse. For folk group of this time (no psychedelic influences to be heard here), compositions are quite long and gives a lot of space to develop the song, to the good of this album as whole.

I also like this lazy English feeling I have from this album.

4(+), nice prog folk, full of usual stuff and something more, but together working extremely good. And again, clear bass lines to be heard here. I think that when you want to hear bass, just listen some prog folk songs and you're done.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
